Large bottle 2017 turkey flat grenache

Deep red/purple hue, and a medium-complex, spicy, charming bouquet despite its youth. Medium-bodied, soft and fleshy, smoothly textured and supple, with gentle tannins and good length. An attractive wine, drinking well now. Straightforward but good

Grenache has its origins in Spain and is particularly well suited to the Barossa climate due to its ability to withstand extremes of heat, aridity and wind.

The fruit for this wine was predominantly sourced from 98 year old Grenache vines grown on the Turkey Flat Vineyard. These old vines produce fantastically concentrated fruit which translates into a style of Grenache for which Turkey Flat has become famous.

These vines are traditionally spur pruned, in the goblet style of Southern France and yields are kept low (around 2 tonnes/acre or approximately 32 hectolitres/hectare) producing wines of exceptional quality.

To retain the perfect balance of fruit, tannin, herbaceousness & spice, critical attention is paid to the ripeness levels of fruit prior to hand-picking. A carefully chosen ratio of new & old French oak with the right toast bring this style, our winemaker's obsession, to life.

Enjoy with: Look to Grenache's origins - Spain, Italy & Southern France for food pairing inspiration; tapas, lamb, tomato-rich dishes, food to be eaten in the sun, the wine cooled just slightly on that hot summer's day. This darker style also pairs exceptionally well with steak, particularly when aged.

2014 Vintage Tasting notes

The wine is one of power, balance and is exceptionally varietal. The nose delivers black fruit and a subtle hint of bracken. The palate follows with a rich body of fruit and layered space, bound by a deep structure and modest oak integration.

2014 Grenache - a satisfying finish

Medium ruby-purple coloured, the 2014 Grenache displays a gorgeous nose of crushed red cherries and raspberries with lavender, white pepper and Provence herb hints. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant, fresh and oh-so-spicy, with satiny tannins and a satisfying finish.
